NORRIDGEWOCK, Maine — A North Anson woman is dead after the car she was driving left U.S. Route 201A in Norridgewock and went into an embankment, police said Friday.

Louise Wyman, 87, died at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, according to Lt. Carl Gottardi of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office.

Wyman was the lone occupant of the vehicle, a 2008 Chevrolet Impala, according to Gottardi. She was traveling westbound when her car left the road and struck the embankment.

Gottardi said the blinding sun was a major factor in the crash, as a witness who was traveling behind Wyman also was blinded by the sun at the same time.

Wyman’s vehicle was totaled in the crash, and she was taken by ambulance to Redington-Fairview Hospital in Skowhegan before being airlifted to EMMC, where she later died of her injuries.

The accident remains under investigation, which is being led by Deputy Wilfred Dodge, Gottardi said.
